Abstract

Providing a thorough and up-to-date overview of the full range of gynaecological cancers, Gynaecological Oncology is a concise introduction, particularly useful for trainees working towards postgraduate examinations. The first section includes introductory chapters on epidemiology, screening and prevention, imaging, pathology, surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and palliation. The second part of the book covers the gynaecological cancer types in turn; each chapter following a similar format looking at clinical issues, staging, and principles of management. Where appropriate, flow-charts and diagrams are used to help the reader assimilate complex information. A chapter is devoted to decision-making, addressing those issues clinicians and women face when deciding on optimal management in given clinical scenarios. The book is practically based and is enhanced by highlighting learning points, management algorithms and clinical images. This is an invaluable resource for all doctors and allied health professionals dealing with women with gynaecological cancers.
